about me

Who I work with 
 

I have an academic background in Psychology, Master of Science from Oxford University and Global Mental Health Post Graduate Certificate from Harvard Medical School. I marry this knowledge with my experience teaching evidence based Trauma Informed Yoga as the CEO & Co-Founder of The Yoga Impact Charity.

I am the creator and lead trainer of The Yoga Impact Charity's 200 Hour Trauma Informed Yoga Teacher Training, I host Trauma Informed Yoga workshops and retreats globally, teach Trauma Informed Yoga programs in Sydney with people recovering from trauma and offer private consultation and mentoring.  

The trauma informed methodology I developed has been evaluated by the New South Wales Services for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors and found to reduce Post traumatic Stress Disorder within 9 classes and Depression within 12 classes. 

I'm an advocate of the inclusion of yoga within healthcare and have been invited to speak at conferences around the world including: The Australasian Conference on Traumatic Stress, The International Journal of Yoga Therapy's Research Symposium, The Australasian Yoga Therapy Conference, The Yoga Australia Conference, The North American Refugee Health Conference and Australia New Zealand Refugee Trauma Conference. My work has been featured in The International Journal of Yoga Therapy, The Sydney Morning Herald, ABC News, SBS, The Australian Yoga Journal, Yoga Today Magazine and WellBeing Magazine.
